DIY Keychain In Seoul: Wappen Shop Ikseondong

Tuesday, April 23, 2024

While waiting for my friend, I spotted a wappen store in Ikseondong that wasn't as crowded as the ones in Myeongdong. It's a trendy activity for foreigners and even locals that I've been seeing a lot on TikTok.   


Although I thought it was a bit expensive, since I had nothing else to do and Ms. Dinna had also asked me to make two for her, I decided to go for it.  


The Wappen House is a nice place to go around, and the people manning the store are nice too!


Although the keychains are the more popular option, you can also decorate other stuff here like canvass totes and pouch


I realized that it's best to look around first for design and placement ideas and inspo!


I chose the long key rings and then asked the store owner for help with Ms. D's patch requests. At first I was so confused about what to put on my key ring, but eventually decided to make it spring and seventeen themed.


Different length for the keyring option


So many wappen or patches to choose from!


If you can't find what you have in mind, the lady manning the store can help you!


The keyrings I designed for Ms. Dinna, and my Seventeen-insipired keyring


After agreeing on the design and placement, they will hot iron everything in place.


The price for each key ring is determined by the number and size of the patches. On average, our designs range from Php 800 to Php 950.

The store owner informed me that I could choose one extra wappen for free with each key ring, so I picked out a duck for myself, yey!


With my name in Hangul, it's actually super cute, so I have no regrets!

My creation! I would actually like to make another one for my other bags hehe


It actually went well with my Fwee Keyring and Sonny Angel!
